Yam virus diseases: A threat to a food security crop in West Africa
Yam is one of the most important tuberous crops of West Africa. Millions of people depend on yam tuber for food and income, thus yam is a food security crop in West Africa. Yam production is adversely affected by virus diseases which reduce tuber yield and restrict international movement of germplasm. Information on disease incidence and distribution is necessary to determine research...
